About 3 years ago when my son was 8, we had an arguement. He decided that he didn't want to live at home anymore, and took it upon himself to try walking to my workplace 3 miles away along a 2 lane highway mind you, to apologize to me. Not only was this terrifying because he was only 8, but he has autism, which adds tremendously to the danger because he doesn't have any real idea of danger or fear. He got as far as a local insurance office, and the staff called me at work to tell me that he was there. Needless to say, God, my father and FIL were watching over him! From that moment on, me and DH have never let him out of our sight and NEVER will!
